The guqin is possibly the most quintessential Chinese musical instrument. That’s why there is no better way to celebrate the Chinese New Year than to enjoy a performance by skilled masters of the instrument at the Hongqi Theater, where they will take on some of the most famous and touching guqin compositions ever written. 

Sat Feb 16, 7.30pm; RMB80-380; Tianjin Hongqi Theater, see event listing.

Fu Baoshi was a household name all through the first half of the 20th century in China, and for good reason – he singlehandedly modernized the Chinese traditional landscape painting by introducing new inking methods and dotting techniques. Now, Tianjiners can get the chance to learn more about this influential figure in the dedicated exhibition titled ‘Qi Ming Wei Xin – Fu Baoshi’s Art World’ at the Tianjin Museum.

Through Sun Mar 31; Tue-Sun, 9am-4.30pm; Tianjin Museum, see event listing
